Hibs have today signed
Kilmarnock striker Colin Nish on a three-and-a-half-year contract until the summer of 2011.

The 6ft 4in hitman signed a pre-contract agreement with the club just yesterday, but Hibs boss Mixu Paatelainen has persuaded
Kilmarnock to part with their top scorer immediately and we understand the fee is in the region of £150,000.

Nish, 26, is a self confessed Hibs fan and will be delighted to join his boyhood heroes.

Hibs boss Paatelainen was delighted to welcome
Nish to Easter Road, speaking to the official site, ww.hibernianfc.co.uk, the gaffer said:

"We're very pleased to have secured Colin's services at this time. He is a very talented player who has proven that he can score goals in the SPL so we are delighted to welcome him to the Club."
